Starting a review and giveaway blog!

Must Have Tools For Setting Up A Product Review And Giveaway Blog

Google Analytics. This needs to be set up on your blog so you can give page views and monthly uniques.

Twitter account. Don’t forget to add me @sadieparty . I follow back people who follow me.

Feed Burner. Feed Burner is pretty user friendly and self explanatory. I just went through every setting and read it to see if it would apply to me or if it was something I wanted. I have read and researched a lot through this process. If you go to edit Feed details you can get your Feed address. and you put it Blogger under Settings > Site Feed > Post Feed Redirect URL. Now when people subscribe to your Feed you are ready to go! Make sure you opt for the email subscription as well. A lot of brands want to know what your email or RSS reach is and this is where you get that info.

Facebook. Most brands want your Facebook page stats. While you are on Facebook sign up for:
Networked blogs. Do not syndicate to your page, it will get lost in the sea. It is always better to hand post on Facebook to engage your readers. You want Networked blogs because it creates some nice back links.
Klout. This is relatively new and some brands ask for it. A nice bonus is that you get products for having Klout called Perks.
Triberr This is a great networking tool and traffic driver. Make sure you are in the right niche though, and make sure you read the rules of the Tribes.
Alexa. Register your blog with Alexa. Put a widget on your blog, and download a tool bar. Set your blog as your home page.

Linked In. This is mostly a networking tool, but You can receive a handful of opportunities through Linked In.
Technorati. Sign up for this right away.

And don't forget to follow by email or GFC! Follow me on twitter I FOLLOW BACK! @Sadieparty
